The perfect summer read: Enchanted August by Brenda Bowen

augustBrenda Bowen has updated Elizabeth von Arnim’s classic ‘The Enchanted April‘ with a new setting and modern dilemmas:

When four strangers answer a mysterious advertisement to spend August on Little Lost Island, they imagine a magical month of sun, sea, lobster and cocktails. Each of them is desperate to get away: Rose an exhausted mother of highly-strung twins, Caroline the disgraced Hollywood actress, Lottie whose husband is on the brink of an affair, and Beverly who is recovering from a heartbreaking loss. But despite the perfect setting and the best of intentions, personalities begin to clash – particularly with the appearance of an unexpected visitor. One thing’s for sure though, it will be an unforgettable summer.
